The 1939 Fabricator 



PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS 
NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 
NEW BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS 



. 





THE SCHOOL 



r I ^ODAY is the age of golden opportunities 
-*- to the youth of the nation who desire to 
increase their education in some chosen 
field of endeavor and thereby equip them- 
selves with the tools of education necessary 
to achieve success in their chosen profession. 
Of all the diversified lines of study open to 
the youth of the country, New Bedford Textile 
School offers as unique an education as can 
be found in any of our institutions. Although 
the school does not award the much desired 
degree of Bachelor of Science, the practical 
knowledge and close contact with the outside 
industries, which our institution always 
strives to maintain, is a factor which will be 
of great importance to the student when he 
later realizes that this practical knowledge 
gained in school is a necessary implement for 
his position in the industry. 

The New Bedford Textile School was 
founded for the purpose of establishing and 
maintaining a textile school for instruction 
in the theory and practical art of textiles and 
kindred branches of the industry. The school 
primarily confines itself to instruction in the 
cotton branch of the textile industry, although 
rayon is now finding its place in the course 
of instruction. The whole of the machinery 
and apparatus in the school is modern, being 
constructed especially for the school. There 
is no manufacturing establishment which can 
present so large a variety of machinery as 
the New Bedford Textile School offers, as the 
school's machinery is selected to afford the 
maximum facilities for all kinds of experi- 
mental work. 

Many diversified courses are offered in the 
school, each giving a complete education 
along a specialized line of study. The course 
in cotton manufacturing is designed to give 



that's Different! 

the student a thorough fundamental knowledge of the different processes 
entering into the construction of a piece of cloth from the raw staple to 
the finished product. The first two years are spent studying the funda- 
mentals of cotton manufacturing, during which time the student is also 
given various allied subjects each of which is more or less essential to 
the manufacturing of cotton fabrics. The student is well versed in all 
the processes which are carried on in a textile manufacturing establishment. 
In third year he is thrown on his own resources, as most of the work in the 
final year is original, thereby exciting the initiative of the individual. The 
course is thorough and prepares the student for executive positions in any of 
the various processes necessary to cotton cloth manufacturing. 

To the individual interested in chemistry, the Chemistry, Dyeing and 
Finishing Course provides a thorough knowledge of the chemistry of the 
textile processes involved in the manufacturing of cotton cloth. To insure 
a perfect foundation, the first two years are devoted almost entirely to 
chemical subjects and laboratory, as general chemistry, chemical analysis 
and organic chemistry. The student also must pursue many allied sub- 
jects as well as a study of the various fibres and methods of coloring them. 
The final year is spent in study of commercial methods of processing cotton 
fabrics and in the last semester, the student carries out a thesis, developing 
by his own initiative some improvement in chemical processes, whereby he 
increases his own knowledge of the specific process chosen and increases the 
total accumulation of research material for students who follow. 

The Designing Course is a branch of study closely allied to the cotton 
manufacturing course but offers more extensive work in weaving and the 
designing and analysis of cotton fabrics. The student is taught in all 
the various types of construction of the different cotton fabrics and obtains 
a thorough knowledge of each. 

Manufacturing of knit goods is another course allied with the general 
cotton manufacturing course but is more adapted to the needs of those 
students desiring a thorough knowledge of the knitting industry. The 
student is instructed in methods of operation of various types of knitting 
machines. Instruction given covers both the technical and practical parts 
of the business as well as the fundamentals of cotton manufacturing. 

Students with a mechanical inclination find the Mechanical Course well 
fitted for their desires. A practical knowledge of the mechanical side of 
a textile mill is obtained, as well as extensive training in drafting, in this 
two-year certificate course. 

The Testing and Fabric Analysis Course and the Rayon Preparation 
Course have recently come into more prominence. The increasing demand 
for laboratory technicians and research men has made graduates of these 
courses of technical methods of testing and analysis, men of importance 
in the outside industry. The ever increasing demand for research in the 
cotton industry will cause these courses to enlarge in the years to follow. 




Honorable Samuel Ross 



DEDICATION 



With respect for his ability as a legislator; with appreciation and regard 
for his impartial judgment so often rendered between employers and 
employees; with gratitude for his faithful and tireless efforts for the wel-

CHEMISTRY 

This column is to acquaint the readers 
with the members of the Second Year 
Chemistry Class. 

CARL CARLIN, one fellow who appre- 
ciates beautiful music. His favorite or- 
chestra is Willie Bryant, draw your own 
conclusion. 

JOHN GILMAN, another chemist musi- 
cally inclined, he plays the jug beautifully. 

PAUL RILEY, a true chemist who has 
great inventive ability. Plays soccer and 
basketball well also. 

MILTON KRAMER— can little smiling 
"Miltie" help it if he is the toughest guy 
in the class? Neither can anyone else. 

THEODORE ZIEMBA— better known as 
"Teddy", bound to become a great man 
in a Chemical Industry. 

EDWARD MULLALY— better known as 
"Ted", due to succeed; perhaps some day 
he will be known as the Great Surgeon. 



EDWARD SIMPSON— destined to be a 
Good Textile Chemist and a member of the 
next Olympic Rifle Team. 

EARL WILSON— perhaps Earl will 
some day own the newspaper for which 
he is now working. 

FELIX BUBA, will be a great orchestra 
leader with a hobby, which is probably 
chemistry. 

WILLIAM MARCEAU — known as 
"Bill", and if anyone has any ideas of 
World Affairs, "Bill" will try to bring 
them over to his side. 

JOSEPH LEAL — Joe to anyone in 
school. Breaks all speed records with his 
car. Joe and John Gilman are inseparable 
pals, try to separate them. 

FRANCIS McQUILLAN— a good-heart- 
ed romeo. Frank's side line, besides his 
chemistry, is managing an up-and-coming 
dance band.

Fabricator, 1939 



CLASS OF 1940 



GENERAL 

Let me introduce the students in the 
*"mad mill men" class. 
RAYMOND BABBITT ("Cowboy") : 

This strong silent he-man seems to have 
missed his calling. He spends most of his 
time at the Truesdale Hospital in Fall 
River, with the "sweetest, little nurse in 
training," so we are told. Perhaps he 
should have been a doctor. 
LEON BOIKO ("Bowkow") : 

"Bow'kow" spends more of his time out 
of school than in school, usually on Exam- 
ination Days, but we must give him credit, 
for while he is in school he knows as much 
as the instructors — ask him sometime. The 
class is trying to collect enough money to 
send Leon back to Russia. 

ARTHUR COE (Art) : 

Art is the father of the class, and he is 
very popular. He is the top trumpet player 
and musician of the class. Art is still true 
to his native Fairhaven. 
GEORGE CURRY (Curry) : 

Curry is one man, at least, who does not 
believe that "variety is the spice of life". 
He has been going around with the same 
girl practically all his life. It seems that 
Poloquin and Tripp have been trying to 
get Curry out just one night an give him 
a little variety, but George won't be led 
from the straight and narrow path. 
RICHARD DALESSANDRO (Dick) : 

Dick is the gentleman of the class. He 
loves to work, for when he finds a moment 



of leisure, he does more work. Dick thinks 
that Poloquin can find more ways to make 
mistakes than anyone in the class. 

RAYMOND GOBEIL ("Gobble"): 

If anyone wants to hire a first class 
stooge, Gobble is the man guaranteed to 
give results. If it were not for him the 
class would be forced to hire a jester to 
keep things alive. 
WILLIAM POISSON ("Hank"): 

"Hank," an authority in the class on 
swing bands, is a very hard worker, but 
manages to squeeze in a few moments to 
fight with Ray Gobeil or Johnnie Walsh. 
He had a little accident awhile back, but 
when he found he couldn't collect insur- 
ance, he quickly recovered. 
RUDOLPH POLOQUIN ("Rudy"): 

"Rudy" better known as "Cassanova" is 
God's Gift to Women. Some one has to 
keep the fair sex happy. 
LESLIE TRIPP ("Trippie") : 

Here is the original "man about town". 
He is like a page from Esquire. Our spies 
tell us that Trippie has practically paid 
off the mortgage on the Bridge Diner. 

JOHN WALSH ("Walshy") : 

Walshy is the original white collar 
worker of the class. He hates to get his 
hands dirty, but thanks to Prof. Richard- 
son, he has not been able to stay spotless. 
He is also quite an authority on swing, but 
Hank Poisson doesn't think so. They get 
along like cat and dog.

MECHANICAL 



NICHOLUS ANTONOULIS "Nicky" 

Though quiet in his manner Nicky depends 
upon his keen powers of observance. 

CARLTON W. BRADSHAW "Toots' 

Toots does his work easily and efficiently, 
but he does a good job which seldom lacks 
in quality. 

JOSEPH R. BROWN, Jr. "Joe" 

Joe, a good natured fellow, is the victim 
of so many jokes and tricks, he hardly knows 
when something is not being perpetrated 
against him. 

TEDDY BLECHARCZYK "Ted" 

Teddy is a fine student, workman and a 
member of the basketball team. 

LAWRENCE CHARRAUX "Dopey" 

His dislike for studies and his blunt at- 
tempts to free himself from their bonds has 
left him many embarrassing circumstances. 

WILBUR W. DELANO "Del" 

"Del" was formerly a football star at 
Dartmouth High School, but he has varied 
his talent, and is now a big asset to the 
"Tech" debating team. 

MALCOM FRAISER "Mac" 

Mac has a very characteristic fiery temper 
whether in class or on the basketball floor. 

JOHN FERDINAND, Jr. "Red" 

"Red" never takes his studies too seriously 
but can generally find some way of having 
them done "nearly" on time.

he can afford to attend all the sporting events 
in greater New Bedford. 

VICTOR SMITH "Vic" 

He is a good student who does his work 
very well by applying himself. 

GEORGE SILSBY "Manny" 

This tall lanky fellow, formerly of the

CHEMISTRY 



CLASS OF 1941 



Each member of the Freshman Chemis- 
try Class seems to have a prized motto 
which has been with him throughout his 
early career. The motto — "The world owes 
me a living," explains in short why teach- 
ers go gray. In Textile the class is off to 
a slow start. Not much has been accom- 
plished yet. While the students haven't 
started to improve their minds, their health 
has become perfect through frequent naps 
indulged in wherever they might be, in 
laboratory or lecture room. 

But suppose we look over each indi- 
vidual's qualifications. 

NELSON B. ARMITAGE leads the 
noise-making element of the class. Talks 
unceasingly in a penetrating voice, mostly 
about girls. His laugh is a combined 
cackle and screech which is the reason why 
teachers lower his daily mark frequently. 

JOHN BARTER is the opposite type 
from Nelson, being very quiet. A quite 
careful and industrious person always 
found at his desk minding his own busi- 
ness and doing his own work. 

NORMAN R. BURT, we once proph- 
esied, would be a matinee idol. At least 
one person thinks he is God's gift to the 
fair sex. Who? N. R. B. 

JAMES F. CAIRNS, the lanky individ- 



ual always working overtime perhaps to 
make up for time wasted during school 
hours. 



Another possessor of that rare virtue of 
being able to do one's own work, is 
EVERETTE W. COUNSELL. 



GEORGE M. DABROWSKI was once 
proclaimed "Peanut Eating Champ of New 
Bedford." Among the other things he is 
tops in, is knowing what everyone else is 
doing. Quell curiosity! 

JULIEN A. DESJARDINS usually hides 
behind a thick stubble. He is a good artist, 
drawing elaborate apparatus set-ups to 
accompany his experiments. Too bad the 
experiments aren't as elaborate. 

ANDREW WENTWORTH GOODWIN, 
ex-Dartmouth High star. His masculine 
prowess is going to waste in a school which 
boasts only two co-eds. 

RALPH E. HAWES, once nicknamed 
"Cherubic Hawes" by an alert sports re- 
porter. Now he vow's to eradicate anyone 
who makes the fatal mistake of calling him 
by that name. We'd better be careful. 

BERNARD P. KUWASKI spends his 
time worrying about coming chemistrv 
tests. He worries more after. 




Third Row — J. Barter. R. Sumner. E. Counsell. J. Cairns, A. Goodwin. 

Second Row — N. Armitage, J. Desjardins, S. Michelson, R. Long. R. Hawes, R. Taylor. G. Stetson. 

N. Burt. 
Front Roiv — G. Dabrowski, E. Wood, J. Morris. A. Taylor, E. Patnaude, J. Leontire. 

Fabricator, 1939 29 



JAMES A. LEONTIRE has been feeling 
like a cowboy without a horse. Reason — 
his car hasn't been registered this year. 

ROBERT R. LONG, who we all know 
as "Shorty", has a sunny personality un- 
equaled in the chemistry department. 



one has to wake him up when the train 



gets in. 



RAYMOND SUMNER is tops in his 
studies. Certainly he does his best at any- 
thing he undertakes. An inspiration for 
the rest of us. 



SIDNEY MICKELSON is the poor soul 
who has to get up in the wee hours of the 
A.M. to unload trucks. Such is the life of 



a hard-working trucker. 



For a bit of a traveler we have JAMES 
J. MORRIS. He has visited many parts 
of North, Central and South America. A 
good worker we have found. 

EARL PATNAUDE is the chemist su- 
perb of this class of "mad chemists". He 
can be seen at any time of the day with a 
book in his hand; at that it might be 
"Gone with the Wind". 



ALDEN TAYLOR is constantly giving 
advice on affairs of the heart. So long as 
it is free we listen. 

Who is late for school almost every 
morning, sleeps through lectures and 
undertakes experiments only with the as- 
sistance of three or four others? None 
other than RICHARD E. TAYLOR. 

WILLIAM WINGATE is a person to be 
envied. His father is an expert on textile 
chemistry and dyeing. No wonder the boys 
like to visit at William's home. 



GEORGE ROBERT STETSON hails 
from a hamlet somewhere north of here 
called Myricks. Every morning he at- 
tempts to do his homework on the Way to 
school, but we hear that invariably some- 



EDWARD B. WOOD, formerly Presi- 
dent of the first year classes, was with us 
only one term. We hope he is doing well 
on the outside. 

Walk do not run to the nearest exit. 



CLASS OF 1941 



GENERAL 



A small but hilarious group of students 
stormed the New Bedford Textile School 
in September, '38, supposedly in the Gen- 
eral Cotton Manufacturing Course. After 
discovering that they were general clean- 
ers and repairmen for the upperclassmen 
thev took to their positions like true 
W.P.A. aspirants, doing the least they 



could in the most time. Never a day passed 
without the three members of the Ritz 
Bros. Wrecking Crew discovering some 
new prank to wreck havoc on some one of 
their classmates to the hilarity of the oth- 
ers. So that you may know these indus- 
trious fun-makers, we introduce the First 
Year General Class.

Front Row—H. Pollock, D. Stanley, B. Hathaway. M. Macia. 



BARBARA HATHAWAY— Although she 
is the only feminine member of our class, 
she has the will and the way to get along 
with her fellow classmates. 



NORMAN HILDITCH— The pride of 
the freshman class because of his feats on 
the basketball court. Norm is also the 
class' most active shadow-boxer. 



MOSES MACIA— Our little prize pack- 
age from New York, Moe is the originator 
of such familiar expressions as "Lovely 
Dish". "Fun is Fun"', "but you can't die 
laughing".

8:30 or 10:30. 

HERMES TOUCHETTE— Professor 
Burlap, the most outspoken speaker ever 
to enter Textile School. He plans to re- 
vise the present Textile Methods. 

HARRIS POLLOCK— Chief Chauffeur 
to Hilditch and Armitage is Harris' most 
tedious work while in school. 

NORMAN DUCKWORTH— A late en- 
trant to our class, he is the victim of fre- 
quent "quack-quacks" from playful class- 
mates. 



STEPHEN MEMBLATT— well known 
around school for his "thoity-thoid St. 
dialect". We often hear him say while 
working on machinery, "This is the doiti- 
est woik I've ever done." 

ISAAC STEINER— Ike is the most stu- 
dious student we know of. He is truly a 
handy man around the classroom. 

WILLIAM SYNAN— Bill has been 
christened "The Man about Town". He 



DAVID STANLEY— Dave is just as 
flashy in the drawing room as he is on the 
baseball diamond. Who'd-of-thunk-it? 



ROBERT WHEWELL— An expert loom 
fixer, but still a noted member of the Ritz

CLASS HISTORY 

Today as we stand upon the threshold of another commencement, we realize that 
we are about to offer our talents to a swiftly moving world, and we wonder if the 
noted authority who said, "They (the younger generation) are the hope of the world," 
really meant what he said. 

But enough of the future, let us reminisce for a while; let's look back over our 
three-year stop-over at this temple of education. 

On the morning of Sept. 14, 1936, there entered the school a varied group of 
bewildered students. But the bewilderment soon disappeared and it was found 
that they were one of the most versatile and ambitious classes ever to enter the 
school. This was proven at the first class meeting when breaking all precedents 
they voted to collect monthly dues to aid them three years hence. Their intelligence 
was further shown by the choice of their leaders of their Freshman year. The 
officers chosen were: Floyd Ashworth, President; Frank Asp in, Vice-President; 
Eunice Sylvia, Secretary; and Clifford Flanagan, Treasurer. Under their guidance 
we felt that we could go far. Then, into the intricacies of school life and studies. 
Life went along smoothly, and all became engrossed in school activities, the out- 
standing among these being the fraternities. How well we remember the Rush 
Week and Initiation Week, how well we remember the ministering of the various 
degrees. Ah yes, it is a swell memory. Then on May 7, 1937, came the glorious 
social of our class, this was the First Annual Spring Hop, sponsored by us and 
held at the New Bedford Country Club. This also was a forward step in the right 
direction. Our first year ended with the annual final exams, but we all came through 
with flying colors and turned our eyes toward our second year. 

Once again we returned fresh and ready to take up our tasks, some new', others 
old, but all interesting and educational. We also changed our officers to give 
governing to others who deserved it. Those to guide our second year destinies were 
President, Joseph Dias; Vice-President, Louis Pacheco; Secretary, Gordon Ogden; 
Treasurer, Donald Smith. 

Although our class as a whole was comparatively inactive, due to the stress of 
school studies, individuals attained much notoriety in fields of endeavor: Baseball, 
Basketball, Golf, Soccer, Tennis, and Debating, all served to put Textile on the 
Map of Outstanding Collegiate Achievements. The teams were ably coached by the 
athletic members of the faculty. Time flew and once again we stumbled through 



34 Fabricator, 1939 



final exams onto a well earned vacation. Some of the students spent their short 
time away from actual studies, in the plants related to the textile industries, and 
gained a wealth of practical knowledge in this manner. 

So we entered upon the final year determined more than ever to make a lasting 
impression on the school blotter of studies and activities. After the class elections, 
which found at the helm of our senior ship. President, Donald Smith; Vice-President. 
Louis Pacheco; Secretary, Alfred Mikus; Treasurer, Gordon Ogden, we sponsored 
a series of dances which netted us a pretty penny to go towards our commencement 
expenses. The climax of this series was the Third Annual Senior Spring Hop, held 
this year at the New Bedford Hotel Ballroom. Gay was the crowd with the beau- 
tifully gowned members of the fair sex, and their gallant escorts, and once again 
was chalked up another social success for the class of '39. Then came the duties 
of organizing the year book and under the capable direction of Clifford Flanagan, 
this beautiful and sensational book makes its appearance with a bountiful gain in 
the educational and financial attainment. Then came the crowning event of the three 
happy years, the Senior Banquet and Prom held at the Beautiful Silver Moon on 
picturesque Buzzards Bay by the Cape Cod Canal. Soft lights, sweet music, and 
canoes on the bay make this a memory that will linger long after others have 
faded. Then came the graduation, and before a crowded auditorium we became 
the first class to graduate in the dignified dress of cap and gowns. Now with dip- 
lomas in hand we can face defiantly even this unsettled world. 

Let us look back on the individual accomplishments of the members of our class. 
The school will long remember the class' three-letter men, Elton Mann. J. Edward 
Houghton, Joseph Dias, Albert Anselmo and Stanley Pelczarski. 

Other athetes whom the team will miss are, Sam Craven, Alex Patykula, Bill 
Armitage, Jerry Aillery, John Harrington, Herb Briggs, Dave Braiden, Joe Rose, 
Scott Whiteher, and John Libby. The debating team will also lose its organizers, 
Cliff Flanagan and Henry Taylor, also Fred Geary and George Duckworth. We 
are proud to have contributed so many fine athletes and speakers to the activity 
annals of the school. 

Now as we stand at the parting of the ways, some will continue their education 
at other institutes of knowledge, while others will give their all to the world's 
industries. Let us always keep in mind the traditions and principles, remember 
always that "Tech" is the school that is different. Who was it that said, "It is not 
what you do, but how well that you do it."'

HUMOR 

"You look hollow chested and thin," said the air pump to the inner tube. "What 
seems to be the trouble?" 

"Income Tacks," wearily replied the inner tube. 



Mikus — I want a box of powder for my girl. 

Clerk (trying to be funny) — The kind that goes off with a bang? 

Mikus — No, the kind that goes on with a puff. 



Aillery — Wouldn't it be wonderful if a fellow could read a girl's mind? 
Dias — Yeah, just think what it would save on gasoline consumption. 



Judge— Why did you steal that $50,000? 
Ogden — I was hungry. 



Smith — I understand that Mullaly can't meet his creditors. 
Libby — I don't believe he particularly wants to. 



I sneezed a sneeze into the air 
It fell to the ground I know not where 
But hard and cold were the looks of those 
In whose vicinity I snoze.

Officer — I could see you a mile off. 



Eskimo — What would you say, darling, if I told you that I pushed my dog team 
for 1,000 miles through ice and snow just to tell you I love you. 
Eskimoette — I would say that was a lot of mush. 



You can tell what stage a Textile student is in by the way he signs his name. 
For instance: 

Freshman — Bill Smith 
Sophomore — William Smith 
Junior — W. Algernon Smith 
Senior — William A. Smith 
Graduate — W. A. Smith 
Job Hunter — Smith 



Waiter (to barbarian who tucks his napkin under his chin) — Sorry, no shampoos

JOKES 

Doctor — A piece of dry toast is a good thing to prevent seasickness. 
Libby — I prefer a dry piece of land. 



The university president was delivering his baccalaureate. In the audience were 
an elderly man and woman, obviously foreigners, who were having heavy going as 
they listened to the president address the class of which their son was a member. 

The mother (her brow knitted) — What he say? 

The father— Who? 

The mother — The beega falla in black robes. 

The father — He say school is out. 



Words of wisdom. Hold your nose while reading this one, to get the proper 
inflection. 

Confucius say: When caught in hot water — be nonchalant — take bath. 



Mr. Beardsworth — What is a shuttle?

Mikus — No, a glass is plenty. 



A woodpecker sat on a Freshman's head 
And settled down to drill, 
He pecked and pecked and pecked away 
And wore away his bill. 



Babs Hathaway — You remind me of the sea. 

Aillery — Why, because I'm restless, wild and romantic? 

Babs — No, because you make me sick. 



Vendor — Get your hot peanuts here. 
Pieracinni — Have you got any pecans? 
Vendor — No, but I've got some paper cups. 



Smith — I wouldn't trust my own brother in this lab. 

Mr. Brooks — Well you know your own family better than we do.

6. — Alright, pipe down now. 

7. — Now, we'll weave da clot. 

8. — Who's been swiping dye bottles from my shelf?

THE INTER FRATERNITY COUNCIL 

At the school this year the interest in fraternities and in fraternity affairs seemed 
to warrant the establishment of some sort of coordinating body to oversee and guide 
the brotherhoods to better relations with each other. Several of the students sug- 
gested and drew up a provisional constitution for an Inter-Fraternity Council in 
October, 1938. Both fraternities enthusiastically accepted the idea and the con- 
stitution, and in early November the first meeting under the constitution was held. 

Two members of the faculty, Mr. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., and Mr. John Fawcett. 
were asked to represent both the alumni and the faculty on this board. They gave 
very graciously of their time and influence in order that the embryo council should 
have an excellent start in the world of fraternity affairs. 

The constitution provides for the appointment of three councilors to represent 
each fraternity, the president of each chapter to serve ex-officio, and gives power 
of regulation of social affairs, initiations, etc., to the council subject to "advice and 
consent" by the different chapters. 

The first members of the Council, other than the faculty advisers were as follows: 

Mr. Fred Geary, as President of Beta Chapter, Phi Psi. 

Mr. Louis N. Pacheco, President of Delta Chapter, Delta Kappa Phi. 

Mr. Milton Kramer, as President of Sigma Phi Tau. 

Mr. Donald T. Smith, of Phi Psi. 

Mr. Edward F. Mullaly, Jr., of Phi Psi. 

Mr. John J. Libby, of Delta Kappa Phi. 

Mr. Leslie Tripp, of Delta Kappa Phi. 

At the first meeting of the council it was decided that no permanent chairman 
should be elected and that a temporary chairman should be chosen to supervise the 
meetings each month. 

A joint meeting of the two fraternities was held under the auspices of the council 
and some small measure of success was attained in several unimportant fields, but 
to its proponents the first year of the council was a disappointment. It was perhaps 
too much to expect that all, or even any, of the important recommendations should 
receive serious consideration from the brotherhoods during its initial year. 

As for next year the councilors who remain hope to join with the new delegates 
and renew the efforts to overcome the setbacks caused by the immature birth of 
this idea which is still one of the best to come the way of the New Bedford Textile 
School.

The first event of the year was a joint "smoker" with the Fall River Chapter on 
October 12, at Hotel Mellon, Fall River. Isaac Steiner, Steven Memblant and Sid- 
ney Michelson were accepted as members of Beta Chapter. Their formal induction 
took place at a banquet held in the Bijou Restaurant, Fall River, on February 28. 

The most colorful event of the year was the annual convention which was held 
in New York in April. Many members of the local chapter attended and experienced 
a very enjoyable time. 

Beta will not lose any active men by graduation this year and a larger, more ac- 
tive chapter is expected next year.

HISTORY HIGHLIGHTS 

The second eldest chapter of Phi Psi Fraternity, Beta Chapter was founded in 
1904, one year after Alpha of the Philadelphia Textile School. 

Beta Chapter experienced a very active 1938-39 season, inducting several new 
members and enjoying numerous informal ''smokers" in the fraternity house. 

The Third Degree and Banquet at the Hotel Myles Standish in Boston was a 
very elaborate affair, enjoyed by all the members who attended. Beta sponsored 
several dances this season in addition to their new idea of Turkey Raffles. 

The Annual Phi Psi Convention was held March 31 in Atlanta, Ga., attended by 
Fred Geary and Jerry Aillery representing Beta at the Formal Meetings. The 1938- 
39 season was climaxed by the Farewell Banquet and Dance which proved a fitting 
conclusion for a very active season.

DELTA KAPPA PHI 

This year Delta chapter held its annual open house and smoker at the New 
Bedford Hotel. The new brothers who were initiated into the chapter were: 
Julien Desjardins, Robert Long, and Malcolm Frazier. These men added much 
to the already outstanding chapter. 

The officers who were elected to guide the fraternity for the fraternal year were: 
Consul. Louis Pacheco, Jr.; Vice Consul, John J. Libby; Custodian, Harry T. 
Perkins, Jr. ; Scribe, Scott Whitcher, Jr. ; Annator, Leslie Tripp. 

This year an Inter-Fraternity Council was established, and the Dekes were 
represented on the council by John Libby, Louis Pacheco and Leslie Tripp. This 
council did much to promote inter-fraternity relationship. 

The national convention was held in Lowell on May 5 and 6. Delta was 
exceptionally well represented. Many fond memories and shadows will always 
be connected with the '39 convention. 

Delta chapter provided a goodly number of the school's athletes with Pacheco, 
Libby, Pelczarski, Pieraccini, Tripp, Whitcher, Desjardins and Frazier giving their 
all for the Alma Mater. 

The Deke Volley Ball Team proved to be too much for the faculty on the 
Saturday morning contests. We wish the faculty better luck next year. 

We wish to thank Mr. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., for his time and effort as our 

faculty adviser in fraternal affairs and his guidance in the inter-fraternity council. 
The council had a most efficient and enjoyable year and the graduating brothers 
extend their vows of brethrenship to the present or future brothers.

BASEBALL-1938 

When the call was sent out for 
baseball candidates, the Textile lads 
responded immediately and a fine dele- 
gation turned out including a good 
proportion of seasoned veterans as well 
as many newcomers, several of whom 
displayed fine potential ability, gained 
from previous experience, making the 
outlook for the 1938 baseball season 
of New Bedford Textile School very 
encouraging. 

Altogether, it looked as if "Tech" 
would have a strong team with the ex- 
ception of the pitching department, as 
there were only Winiarski, a veteran, 
and Dias, who had seen a little service 
the previous season. However, by the 
time the first game rolled around, Coach 
Thomas Gourley had a strong, colorful 
team whipped into shape. The team 
rounded out to be: Gula behind the bat, 
Babbitt at first, Barry at second, Mann 
at short, Patykula at third, and the 
outer garden was taken care of by Ryan, 
Presby, Mikus, and Zubricki. The 
pitchers were Winiarski, Dias, and 
Libby. 

APRIL 22, 1938 

NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING vs. 

TECH 
The New Bedford baseball team 
opened the 1938 campaign by suffering 
a defeat at the hands of a strong New- 



port team by a score of 3-1. Textile's 
lone counter came in the fifth when 
Patykula walked, Mann was hit by a 
pitched ball and Barry singled to score 
Patykula. The Sailors' first score came 
in the third, when Rip Chirdon blasted 
a long home run to right center and 
scored behind one of his mates, who 
had reached first on an error. Newport 
scored again in the eighth, on an out- 
field error and a long double. Dias 
pitched well and kept eleven hits well 
scattered, while Newport's Slim Grey 
allowed "Tech" but 5 bingles. Barry 
led the Millmen with two hits in four 
appearances at the plate, while Paty- 
kula, at the hot corner, starred on the 
defense. 

APRIL 27, 7938 
TECH vs. WENTWORTH INSTITUTE 

The Millmen proved to be no match 
for the crack aggregation representing 
Wentworth. The trip to Boston was 
marred by the 11-2 defeat, due mainly 
to needless errors. The Millmen's bats 
reaped in their brace of runs in the fifth 
inning on a walk, Barry's double and 
two errors, and altogether totaled but 
three hits all afternoon. Wentworth 
scored five runs in the first inning and 
therefore "Tech" was never in the run-

APRIL 29, 1938 
DURFEE TEXTILE vs. TECH 

The "Tech" team finally showed their 
real power and broke into the win col- 
umn with a decisive victory of 12-2 
over Durfee Textile. It looked like a 
real ball game up to the fourth inning 
and then the New Bedford boys sent five 
runs across the plate and ten men to 
bat before the Durfee players could 
retire the side. The game lasted only 
seven innings as both coaches agreed to 
call it a day at that time. 

The Durfee stickers could do nothing 
against the speed of Joe Dias, who al- 
lowed only seven hits. The team played 
errorless ball with Barry and Mann 
handling 15 chances around the key- 
stone sack without the semblance of an 
eiror. Jack Ryan led the hitters with 
three hits in four appearances at the 
plate. 

MAY 2, 1938 
VOCATIONAL vs. TECH 

Textile lost another ball game at the 
hands of a scrappy Voke team by a 
score of 9-7. The first four innings, 
it was nip and tuck with the score see- 
sawing back and forth, and being seven 
up as the fifth inning opened. Voke 
scored the winning run in the fifth and 
put the game on ice with another 
counter in the ninth. 

Barry, the Millmen's second baseman, 
led the hitters with two singles and a 
double, while Patykula handled seven 
chances perfectly at the hot corner. 

MAY 5, 1938 

BECKER COLLEGE vs. TECH 

Behind the steady pitching of Wini- 
arski, "Tech" defeated Becker 5-2 in a 
well played game. Becker's 12 hits 
were well scattered and they had eight 
men left on the bases. The Millmen 
jumped into an early lead as the 
result of a long home run to deep center 
field by Jack Ryan with a teammate 
scoring ahead of him. Becker tied the 
score in their half of the sixth with 
two runs. "Tech", in their half of the 
sixth, matched these two runs to take 
the lead, never to be headed again. The 
fifth run came in the eighth and the 
game was in the bag. No Textile sticker 



got more than one hit, but the orchids 
go to Ryan for his first inning four- 
bagger. Babbitt, at first base, handled 
11 chances with ease, making several 
hard ones look easy. 

MAY 9, 1938 

TECH vs. NEWPORT NAVAL 

TRAINING 

The Navy bunched five hits and three 
passes in the first inning to score seven 
runs and adding three more in the fifth 
to hammer out a 10-2 victory over 
"Tech". The Textiles scored in the first 
on a pass to Mikus and Barry's double. 
Again in the ninth Mikus walked and 
scored on Ryan's safe blow. 

Ryan again led the hitters with three 
hits, and also stole the fielding honors 
by gathering in four hard hit balls out 
in deep center field. 

MAY 17, 1938 
LOWELL TEXTILE vs. TECH 

The local Millmen with their timely 
hitting and great defensive play com- 
bined with the six-hit flinging of Wini- 
arski defeated the visiting Lowell Tex- 
tile nine by a score of 5-1. Lowell 
scored their lone marker in the second 
inning on a pass, a fielder's choice, 
and an error. Barry singled Presby 
home in the first, and in the second, 
Mikus scored on Ryan's single to put 
"Tech" in the lead, which was never 
taken away from them again throughout 
the contest. 

Patykula, with three hits, took the 
batting honors while Barry stole the 
fielding honors, handling six chances 
perfectly at second base. Winiarski 
worked smoothly and had reserve to 
tighten in the pinches. 

MAY 21, 1938 
TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 
The local Millmen swept the season 
series with their Border City rivals by 
earning a 7-6 victory in a very closely 
fought contest. The Durfee aggrega- 
tion took the lead in the second inning 
on a triple and a wild pitch. The 
locals scored three runs in the third 
only to have Durfee score two more 
and tie the score. "Tech" stepped their 
total runs up to seven, n the fourth 
Durfee rallied to score three runs, and 



Fabricator, 1939 



51 



it was only the good fielding of Paty- 
kula, Barry and Mann, which brought 
the rally to an end and thus protected 
New Bedford's 7-6 lead. 

Ryan was the top sticker for the 
local aggregation, while the fielding 
honors were evenly divided throughout 
the whole team. 

MAY 24, 1938 
TECH vs. LOWELL TEXTILE 

By jumping into an early six run 
lead, the Lowell Textile nine was able 
to coast to a 9-4 victory over the New 
Bedford team. "Tech's" runs came in 
pairs: two in the fourth on Ryan's 
single, Patykula's triple and Gula's 
single; two in the fifth on singles by 
Babbitt, Winiarski and Mikus. 

Gula led New Bedford at the plate 



while Mikus, in right, provided the 
thrills in the field. 

JUNE 1, 1938 
TECH vs. VOCATIONAL 

"Tech" closed its season by being 
edged 4-3 by Voke in a long drawn out 
11-inning struggle full of thrills. 
"Tech" held a 3-0 lead and seemed to 
have the game on ice until Voke ral- 
lied in the eighth and ninth innings 
to tie the score. In the eleventh a 
single, a sacrifice, and Procek's single 
gave Voke the winning marker. Not 
one inning went by but there were men 
on the bases due to passes, hits, or mis- 
cues in the field. 

Ryan again stole the batting honors, 
while Barry and Mann, "Tech's" key- 
stone combination, Were tops in the 
field. 



DROPS IN THE BUCKET 



None of the players will forget 
Presby's balancing act up in Lowell 
when he nearly went down a steep bank 
while chasing a foul ball. 

Joe Dias still gets a kick out of tell- 
ing about the time he nearly "beaned" 
Coach Gourley in a practice session. 

Many times the players on the visit- 
ing teams had to be told that Sam 
Craven was not "Tech's" bat boy. In- 
cidentally, in a practice game with New 



Bedford High, Sam's single scored two 
runs which proved to be the margin of 
victory. 

Many had the idea that if "Elky" 
Mann kept picking those line drives out 
of the air, he would pick himself up out 
in left field sooner or later. 

In spite of the fact that the team 
lost two more games than they won, 
they scored a total of 48 runs against 
their opponents' 57 runs.

SOCCER 



This year's soccer team turned out 
to be an all-veteran eleven, well re- 
enforced bv competent substitutes. 
Coach Beardsworth looked forward to 
a highly successful season and was not 
wholly disappointed. The "Tech" team 
was always righting with the "breaks" 
against them. If it had not been for 
this, the Textilites would probably have 
had a more impressive record. As it 
was, they won 5 and lost 3. They de- 
feated Bridgewater Teachers' College, 
Tabor Academy, Brown Jayvees, Har- 



vard Jayvees, and Durfee Textile, once. 
They lost to Durfee Textile and Voke 
twice. 

The members of the team: Babbitt, 
in goal: Gula and Carlin, fullbacks; 
Dias, Patykula, and Houghton, half- 
backs; Craven, outside right; Whalley, 
inside right; Anselmo, center forward; 
Pelczarski, inside left, and Mann, out- 
side left. Reserves included Frey and 
Flanagan, halfbacks and Whewell, 
Ramsbottom and Curry, forwards. 



OCT. 3, 1938 
TECH vs. BRIDGEWATER TEACH- 
ERS COLLEGE 

"Tech" opened its soccer season with 
a 2-1 victory over Bridgewater. They 
scored twice in the first half, the goals 
being produced from the toes of Pel- 
czarski and Whalley. The second half, 
"Tech" played defensively and kept the 
Bridgewater booters well bottled up. 
The Teachers' only score came on a 
penalty kick. 

Patykula was the key man in the Mill- 
men's defense and ably assisted by Frey 
and Gula. Whewell, a newcomer, also 
showed up well when given his chance 



in the game. 



OCT. 19, 1938 
VOCATIONAL vs. TECH 

After a hard fought battle, "Tech" 
bowed to Voke 1-0, as the results of a 
fourth period counter. The score came 
just after the start of the fourth period 
when Voke's outside man dropped a 
corner kick in front of the "Tech" goal 
and the ball was pushed into the net 
before Babbitt could get his hands on it. 
The Millmen kept the ball in Voke 
territory a great deal of the time but 
Voke's defense kept "Tech's" forwards 
bottled up, thus preventing a score. 

Patykula was again the outstanding 
man on the field, although Babbitt de- 
serves credit for his performance in 



Fabricator 9 1939

goal, in spite of the fact that one shot 
got by him. 

OCT. 22, 1938 
TECH vs. TABOR ACADEMY 

"Tech" hooters won their second 
game in three starts by topping Tabor 
2-0. In the first three minutes of play, 
Pelczarski beat the Tabor goalie with 
a shot to give the Millmen a lead to 
work on. The rest of the first half, the 
Textilites kept the ball in Tabor terri- 
tory trying hard to score again, but the 
Tabor goalie tried harder and prevented 
any more scoring. In the second half 
Mann drove one past the Tabor goalie 
to put the game on ice. 

Gula and Patykula were the main 
cogs in "Tech's" defense, while Whewell 
and Mann stood out in the forward line. 

OCT. 28, 1938 
TECH vs. BROWN J.V. 

The Millmen chalked up another 
victory beating the Brown J.V. 1-0, the 
result of Whalley's shot into the net 
in the second period. The "Tech" hoot- 
ers fired shot after shot at the Brown 
goal only to have the goalie get in 
the way and prevent further scores. 
Babbitt, Textile goalie, handled but two 
shots all afternoon. 

Patykula and Houghton did yeoman 
work in defending the Millers' goal 
while Whalley led the attack of the 
forward line. 



NOV. 8, 1938 
TECH vs. HARVARD J.V. 

In a drizzling rain, "Tech" beat out 
a 2-0 victory over the Harvard J.V. 
Club for their fourth win of the sea- 
son. In the second period Pelczarski 
poked one by the Harvard goalie and in 
the third period Mann shook the net 
for a score after receiving a perfect 
pass from Craven. Babbitt turned in a 
fine bit of work in goal handling many 
shots from the Harvard hooters. 

Houghton, Craven and Mann were the 
outstanding players in Textile's victory. 



NOV. 15, 1938 
TECH vs. VOCATIONAL 

Voke won the city schoolboy cham- 
pionship by defeating Textile 3-1. Voke 
tallied three times in the first half, the 
last two coming within three minutes of 
each other in the second period. In the 
third period, "Tech" came to life and 
Whewell crossed one in front of the 
Voke goal. After a short scrimmage, 
Pelczarski poked it into the net. The 
Textile rooters were not able to capi- 
talize on the few opportunities they 
did have and thus 3-1 was the final 
score. 

Gula was by far the outstanding 
player in the Millmen's defense while 
Houghton also turned in a commenda- 
ble performance. 



NOV. 2, 1938 
TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Durfee Textile "booted out" a 4-1 
victory over the New Bedford team due 
to a continuous hard-driving attack 
throughout the game. Houghton scored 
the locals' only counter after Frey 
had given him a setup in front of the 
Durfee goal. The Fall River team out- 
played the New Bedford aggregation 
all through the game, their forwards 
being quicker on the ball and their de- 
fense men more sure footed. 

Houghton and Patykula are the only 
New Bedfordites worthy of credit for 
their performance. 



NOV. 18, 1938 
DURFEE TEXTILE vs. N. B. TECH 

In the last game of the season, the 
New Bedford Millmen defeated their 
arch rivals by a score of 2-0. In the 
first half, Mann crossed the ball in 
front of the Durfee goal and Whalley 
made his shot good to give his team 
the lead. In the second half, Patykula 
dropped a kick in front of the Durfee 
goal and Anselmo shook the rigging 
for the second marker. New Bedford 
Textiles' defense was a stone wall which 
Durfee could not penetrate and the 
New Bedford forward line kept the

Fabricator, 1939 



Durfee defense on their toes all the 
time. 

Although each member of the New 
Bedford team turned in a fine perform- 



ance, Sam Craven, diminutive outside 
right, was the most brilliant player on 
the field. 



MISKICKS 



Sam Craven, the mighty mite of the 
team, showed us this season that size 
does not mean anything in this game 
of soccer. 

Anybody watching the ""Tech" hoot- 
ers practising would get the impression 
that they were playing English rugby 
instead of American soccer. 

Carl Carlin was the warrior of the 
squad and scored many a knockdown 
during the season. 

Wonder if Gene Gula eats Wheaties 



to get all of the power he has to send 
the ball on those high and long rides. 

Houghton may be a quiet "Deacon" 
in school, but you'd never think him 
the same fellow on the soccer field. 

In the Tabor game, Sam Craven spent 
a great deal of time on the ground . . . 



resting. 



In the eight games, "Tech" scored a 
total of i I goals against their oppo- 



nents' 9 goals

BASKETBALL 



SEASON OF 1939 

The call went out for basketball and 
on looking over the aspirants who re- 
ported, it was easy to see that Textile 
would have a fast team and if they got 
off to a good start would enjoy a suc- 
cessful season. An appreciable amount 
of height among the fellows of first 
team caliber was the only drawback. 
Coach Szulik whipped his charges into 
shape and the team was made up of

JAN. 7, 1939 
TECH vs. HARVARD MEDICAL 

In a free scoring game, "Tech" lost 
their opener to the taller and more ex- 
perienced Harvard Medical quintet by 
a score of 56-45. The Harvard five 
piled up a good lead in the second 
period and were able to coast to an 
easy victory. 

Aillery and Mann led the scorers 
with 12 and 13 points respectively, 
while Hilditch, a newcomer, played a 
great floor game, and found the hoop 
for six points. 



JAN. 11, 1939 
ALUMNI vs. TECH 

"Tech" chalked up their first win, 
defeating a strong alumni 31-30. The 
teams were closely matched the first 
half, at the end of which the Millmen 
led 13-10. The Alumni took the lead 
in the third quarter and the Textilites 
did not get it again until the final 
minutes of play when they scored their 
winning points. 

Mikus was "Tech's" outstanding of- 
fensive player, scoring 11 points, while 
Hilditch and Pelczarski turned in a fine 
defensive performance. 

JAN. 14, 1939 
BECKER COLLEGE vs. TECH 

Becker College proved to be too 
strong for the "Tech" quintet and 
trounced the Millmen 57-27. The Tex- 
tilites started off in fine fashion, leading 
11-6 at the end of the first quarter, but 
then the Becker five started to click and 
rolled up the points to walk off with 
the honors. 

Mikus netted 9 points to lead the 
"Tech" scorers who played a stalwart

defensive game. Aillery and Houghton 
played great offensive games until they 
were forced out via the foul route. 



JAN. 18, 1939 
DURFEE TEXTILE vs. TECH 

Due to loose playing in the second 
half, "Tech" lost to their Border City 
rivals 46-34. The locals had it all their 
own way the first period but the second 
quarter found the Durfee quintet click- 
ing and the rest of the game found the 
score seesawing back and forth. The 
third quarter proved to be the downfall 
for the Millmen as they fell too far 
behind to match strides with Durfee 
in the fourth quarter when they put on 
a desperate offensive drive. 

Hilditch led the scorers with 10 
points, while Aillery and Houghton 
turned in some great laborwork. 

JAN. 20, 1939 

TECH vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAIN- 
ING STATION 

The Millmen suffered their fourth de- 
feat in five starts due to a third period 
scoring spree by the Sailors who coasted 
to a 58-35 victory. The Naval quintet 
did not start to pull away until just 
before the half and then came their 
big third period. "Tech" could not 
overtake their opponents in the fourth 
canto although they outscored them. 

Hilditch and Mann were "Tech's" 
only consistent scorers, dropping in 8 
and 12 points respectively. 

FEB. 5, 1939 
TECH vs. ST. ANSELM COLLEGE 

St. Anselm, due to a third period 
rally, defeated the Millmen 41-34 in 
an action-packed game. The "Tech" 
quintet led until the third quarter when 
St. Anselm dropped 15 points through 
the strings. The Textilites fought hard 
but were unable to overtake their oppo- 
nents. 

Hilditch was by far the Millmen's 
outstanding player, both offensively 
and defensively. 



Millmen, Houghton and 



FEB. 8. 1939 
ST. ANSELM COLLEGE vs. TECH 

In their return match with the col- 
legians, "Tech" was completely out- 
classed and lost 62-40. The St. Anselm 
quintet put on a display of brilliant 
passwork and shot with deadly accuracy 
to practically burn the strings off the 
hoop to roll up the points and coast to 
an easy triumph 

For the 
Mann were the only ones who were able 
to find the hoop with any consistency 
scoring 8 and 10 points respectively. 
Houghton also turned in a fine floor 
game. 

FEB. 11, 1939 
TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

By virtue of a 39-36 victory, the 
Millmen scored an upset over the high- 
ly rated Durfee quintet. The New Bed- 
ford five did not click until the third 
period and then they put on a brilliant 
offensive drive to tie the score and go 
ahead to win. 

Houghton and Dias led the scorers 
with 12 points apiece while Aillery and 
Mann turned in a fine floor game. 

FEB. 15, 1939 
TECH vs. ST. GEORGE PREP 

Combining fine team play and un- 
canny accuracy for the hoop, the Tex- 
tile five showed the St. George quintet 
their heels and rolled to a 35-29 vic- 
tory. At one time St. George tied the 
score but the Millmen put on the pres- 
sure and scored 11 points to St. George's 
five. 

Dias led the offensive drives scoring 
13 points, while Hilditch played a fine 
defensive game. Houghton also de- 
serves credit for his great floorwork. 

FEB. 18, 1939 

TECH vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

The Millmen were victims of a scor- 
ing rampage put on by the Becker five 
and were swamped 94-34. In the sec- 
ond, third and fourth quarters, Becker 
scored 23, 24 and 27 points respective- 



Fabricator, 1939

ly, so that the Millmen were never in 
the running after the first period. 

Houghton was the only Textile play- 
er able to find the hoop, scoring 11 
points. 

FEB. 22, 1939 

SALEM TEACHERS COLLEGE vs. 
TECH 

Playing a fine caliber of ball, the 
Millmen scored a 39-33 victory over the 
Teachers College. In the third and 
fourth quarters both teams put on 
scorching offensive drives, but the Tex- 
tilites got the better of the bargain and 
gained the margin of victory. 

Dias was high man scoring 12 points. 
Houghton turned in a fine floor game, 
creating many openings and feeding the 
ball to his mates to score. 

FEB. 23, 1939 
TECH vs. VOCATIONAL 

Due to a great offensive drive in the 
final minutes of play, Voke edged out 
the Textile quintet 39-35. The game 
was fast and hard-fought from start to 
finish. At the start of the fourth canto 
the Millmen held a slim two point ad- 
vantage but were outscored by the Voke 
quintet. 

Mikus led the scorers with 14 points 
while Houghton and Mann were strong 
defensively. 

FEB. 25, 1939 

NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING STA- 
TION vs. TECH 

Due to a third period rally by the 
Sailors, in which they dropped shots in 
from all angles, the Newport five de- 
feated the Textilites 44-36. "Tech" led 
up to this third quarter and fought 



hard in the fourth canto to undo the 
damage but were unsuccessful and thus 
had to take the defeat. 

Mikus and Mann led the scorers with 
seven points apiece, while Hilditch and 
Aillery were strong defensively. 

MAR. 1, 1939 
VOCATIONAL vs. TECH 

The Textile quintet climaxed their '39 
season by edging their arch rivals 34-33 
in a fast, hair-raising contest. The Mill- 
men led all the way, but in the fourth 
quarter, Voke put on a desperate of- 
fensive drive and came within one 
point of the Textilites in the final sec- 
onds of play. Here Houghton put on 
a one-man freezing act, dribbling the 
ball back and forth until the final 
whistle blew. 

Houghton took the scoring honors 
with 15 points while Hilditch was a 
bulwark on the defense. Mann turned 
in a fine floor game creating many 
openings for his mates.

Fabricator, 1939 



In the early spring of 1938, Coach 
Malcolm Richardson was greeted by a 
squad of young tennis aspirants includ- 
ing" student manager Arnold Aspden, 
Nelson Kessell, Elbert Tripp, and Louis 
Pacheco, veterans of the highly suc- 
cessful '37 team. 

The team won their first match de- 
feating New Bedford High School 3-2. 
Displaying excellent tennis the Millmen 
then swamped Becker College, Bridge- 
water State Teachers College, and 
Fairaven High School, and shut out 
New Bedford High 5-0, to sweep the 
series with their city rivals. After a 
hard-fought match, Tech met their first 
defeat of the season (4-3), at the hands 
of Durfee High, who sported an un- 
usually good team for a high school. 
Textile got back in the win column 
against Bridgewater in their next match, 
thus sweeping the series with the teach- 
ers. However, in a return match with 
Durfee High at Fall River, the Millmen 
showed a complete reversal of form 
from the fine tennis they had played 
all season and bowed to their rivals 6-1, 
E. Tripp scoring Tech's only point by 
virtue of a 6-3, 6-3 triumph over his 



TENNIS-1938 



opponent. By winning 3-2 in the sec- 
ond meeting, Textile swept its series 
with Fairhaven High in what proved to 
be the final match of the season for 
the locals. 

Another fine season was at a finish 
for the Richardson coached clan. El- 
bert Tripp, who was by far the best 
racquet wielder Textile ever had, made 
twelve points while losing three, and 
was topped only by Nelson Kessell who 
made fourteen and lost the same num- 
ber. Arnold Aspden was next in line 
with six wins and one loss, while the 
others followed closely behind him. 
The team was an exceptionally fine one, 
losing only to Durfee while winning 
seven games, and having another rained 
out. Maroon jackets with grey leather 
emblems were presented to the follow- 
ing players: E. Tripp, N. Kessell, L. 
Tripp, L. Pacheco, A. Aspden, and A. 
Anselmo, all of whom will be eligible 
next year except E. Tripp and A. Asp- 
den. Arthur Coe and George Curry, 
who played but did not receive jackets 
will also be back.

DEBATING 



Once again the orators of Textile 
were represented in the intercollegiate 
field. Starting the season with a new 
deal in the coaching department the 
debaters embarked upon their most am- 
bitious schedule. The new coach, Atty. 
Leo Adlesohn, divided his squad into 
a varsity and a junior varsity team. The 
varsity to handle the collegiate debates 
and the JV's to care for the high school 
opposition. 

The teams were composed of the vet- 
erans Clifford Flanagan and Henry 
Taylor, and newcomers, Wilbur Delano, 
George Duckworth and Alden Taylor. 
Fred Geary was also a member at the 
start of the year, but was forced to drop 
out because of other activities. 

The varsity opened its season in 
Vermont when a team composed of 
Flanagan, Delano, and A. Taylor 
dropped a close 2 to 1 decision to 
Middlebury College. 

Their next encounter was against a 
strong Boston College team, no deci- 
sion was rendered, but "Tech" proved 
itself a worthy opponent. The team was 



the same one that competed against 
Middlebury. Worcester Tech, our next 
match, was also a no-decision debate 
and the team of Flanagan and H. Tay- 
lor gave a fine account of itself. De- 
bates are pending with Becker College, 
Durfee and Lowell Textile and the Uni- 
versity of Ottawa. 

The JV's on the other hand are hav- 
ing a bit of tough luck with the judges, 
dropping close decisions to New Bed- 
ford and Dartmouth High Schools. The 
up and coming debaters on this team 
were Duckworth, A. Taylor, Delano and 
Geary. Future debates for the second 
team include: Sacred Heart Academy, 
Rogers High of Newport, Barnstable 
High and N. B. Vocational. 

Debating at Textile once again took 
a forward step, and with a wealth of 
material left its prospects are very 
bright. It will, however, lose its found- 
ers, Flanagan and H. Taylor, and also 
George Duckworth, but it now is an 
established activity and will carry on 
itself.

Revere Textile Print Rolls 

A New Bedford Product Famous for a Hundred Years 



For more than a century the Taunton-New 
Bedford division of Revere Copper and Brass 
Incorporated has been making textile print 
rolls. As a result of this long experience the 
Revere organization is in a unique position to 
know and understand practical textile printing 
problems and how to meet them with rolls best 
adapted to give efficient, economical service. 
Textile print roll requirements are severely 
exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, 
free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, 
strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, pre- 
cisely tempered, sufficiently ductile to be 
"picked up" by the engraver's tool, yet suffi- 
ciently hard to enable the edges of the engrav- 
ing to stand, without becoming rounded or 
burred, through long service. 
The rolls must be perfectly concentric; they 
must be straight within close tolerance limits; 
they must be strong enough to drive a heavy 
printing cylinder by friction; tough enough to 
withstand repeated pushing on and off man- 
drell ; and must have the smoothness and tex- 
ture required to prevent the edges of the 



engraving from being eroded by the "doctor" 
blades. 

The standard, most economical, roll is the 
solid wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can 
be repeatedly re-engraved, the old engraving 
being turned off. An average size solid wall 
copper roll should permit at least 25 such 
turn-offs, thus affording 26 new engraving 
surfaces during its life. 

Also available are cheaper rolls, "re-built" by 
drawing new copper tubes over cores consist- 
ing of old turned-down rolls. However, these 
are more likely to cause trouble, and in the 
end are definitely more expensive than the 
solid wall rolls. 

Revere specialists with many years of experi- 
ence in this field are at your service to assist 
you in specifying and obtaining rolls best 
adapted to serve your individual requirements. 
Revere ability to render capable service of this 
kind is perhaps best attested by the fact that a 
large proportion of all textile print rolls in use 
throughout the United States today are of 
Revere make.
